Abstract Experiments with trypsin-dissociated heart muscle cells have shown two distinct processes, aggregation and agglutination , to be involved in the socalled reaggregation of cells. In the case of aggregation the cells adhere to one another by products which originate from them. The cells lose their capacity to conglomerate once they have been washed several times with the nutrient solution. The agglutination is caused by constituents of the nutrient medium. In the calf sera used by us as… Expand
Loss of differentiation features in trypsin separated heart muscle cells
TLDR
Loss of maturation features is demonstrated for 8-day-old chick embryo heart myocytes, once they have been completely dissociated by trypsin, and the availability of differentiation experiments in culture is restricted to cases where, in a selected territory, each cell has been established without doubt as isolated.

Mammalian Myocardial Cells
Publisher Summary This chapter describes culturing of mammalian myocardial cells. In isolation and culture technique for mammalian cardiac cells, three to four days rats are employed routinely. WhileExpand

TLDR
A conspicuous reaction of myocytes after contact with fibroblasts is the accelerated initiation of the spreading phenomenon in which the muscle cell polarizes and starts to beat, which results in the development of synchronously pulsating muscle cell units. Expand
Intrinsic factors influencing the maintenance of contractile embryonic heart cells in vitro. I. The heart muscle conditioned medium effect.
TLDR
Higher proportions of contracting cells were seen in conditioned medium than in either chemically defined or serum containing media in both short term (24 h) and long term (36 days) cultures. Expand
Isolation and culture of neonatal mouse cardiomyocytes.
TLDR
It is shown how to easily dissect hearts from neonates, dissociate the cardiac tissue and enrich cardiomyocytes from the cardiac cell-population, and a variety of options for the optimization of isolation and culture conditions are offered. Expand
Asphalt-coloured spots of isolated functional heart muscle cells in culture.
TLDR
Conspicuous spots lying just beneath the cell membrane away from the nutrient medium are described in cultures of isolated pulsatile heart muscle cells of the chick embryo, in which stages in the development of striated myofibrils can be observed. Expand
Pulsatile activity of isolated heart muscle cells after freezing storage.
TLDR
Several of the frozen heart muscle cells of 8-day chick embryos regained beating activity after thawing, proving that the faculty of autonomous pulsation of these isolated cells can, in principle, withstand freezing. Expand
A specific cytotoxic effect of anti-heart antibodies on cardiac-derived cells in a newly defined in vitro system.
TLDR
There was no evidence in this report to validate previous suggestions that the beta hemolytic Group A streptococcal M-type antigens play a significant part in causing cardiac cell damage through stimulation of anti-heart antibody production. Expand
A mechanical momentum in ultrastructural development of the heart
TLDR
The representatives in culture of a myocyte's connection with the heart's mechanical action are the cords, along which attached points alternate with free strands, and in this respect their pulsations resemble those of the heart, in which the myocytes' contraction acts against the pressure of the blood.

THE ESTABLISHMENT OF BEATING MYOCARDIAL CELLS IN LONG-TERM CULTURE IN FLUID MEDIUM.
TLDR
Long term observations have been made on primary cultures of a mixed population of cells prepared from embryonic chick heart, finding that as the culture propagated in vitro the overall morphology of the cells became progressively more homogeneous so that by four days virtually no fibroblast-like cells were seen. Expand
Regulation of spontaneous activity and growth of embryonic chick heart cells in tissue culture
TLDR
No necessary antagonism exists between growth and the maintenance of a differentiated functional state in embryonic heart cells cultured under the conditions described, and it is suggested that the high intracellular Na+-content and rapid Na-flux characteristic of early embryonic hearts represent devices whereby early pacemaker cells can maintain a ratio of sodium: potassium conductance sufficiently large to permit the onset of spontaneous activity in the high-potassium environment provided by the egg before amnion formation.

IN VITRO STUDIES ON SINGLE BEATING RAT HEART CELLS. VI. ELECTRON MICROSCOPIC STUDIES OF SINGLE CELLS.
TLDR
The ultrastructure of single beating heart cells, isolated from newborn rats by trypsinization and grown in semisynthetic media using a modified feeder layer technique, was investigated and polysomes, scattered filaments, and Z material seem to arise in the periphery of the cell. Expand
An improved method for the isolation and quantitative cultivation of embryonic cells.
TLDR
A method is described for dissociating the heart ventricles and skeletal muscle of 12- to 14-day-old chick embryos and for cultivating quantitatively the free cells thus obtained and some morphological and functional aspects relevant to the development of the culture methods are discussed. Expand
Aggregation of Dissociated Embryonic Chick Cells at 3° C
TLDR
It was concluded that the cells were able to aggregate normally at low temperatures, and that horse serum inhibited cell aggregation at sub-optimal temperatures, differed from the previously demonstrated and corroborated temperature-dependence of aggregation of trypsin-dissociated embryonic cells.

Cobalt-tolerance and mucopolysaccharide production in rat dermal fibroblasts in culture.
TLDR
Cultures of rat dermal fibroblasts which had not been treated with cobalt chloride developed after prolonged cultivation in normal medium an increased tolerance of cobalt, accompanied by metabolic changes of the type seen in induced tolerance, but not by cytological changes or hyaluronic acid production.

Neuron development from trypsin-dissociated cells of differentiated spinal cord of the chick embryo.
TLDR
Embryonic chick spinal cord in advanced stages of differentiation was dissociated into its constituent cells by trypsin digestion followed by mechanical separation, which lends itself readily to studies of single neurons, as well as their reactions to controllable influences of the medium and of other cell types.

Sialic Acid as a Structural Component of Some Mammalian Tissue Cell Surfaces
TLDR
This work has shown that when human erythrocytes are treated with trypsin, a sialomucopeptide is liberated from their surfaces, and this material is associated with a considerable loss of cellular dry mass and alteration of the stickiness of cells for various surfaces in vitro. Expand
